Question: Justin, can I somehow teach myself how to code (C++ ?) by examining the WDL code? I acquired so many books on programming but still do not get how to start making a music notation editor.

    That would be a very difficult way to learn, it would like learning Hungarian from a menu at a restaurant... A music notation editor is a very complex thing! It's probably better to start with smaller tasks.

    I see. Thanks! No wonder why all the tutorials on C++ or JavaScript do not make sense to me.

    Try implementing an app where you can draw with your mouse (a la paint). That should be a simple starting point to get into writing a music notation editor.
